RADON

Radon is an invisible gas formed in the Earth’s crust.
It surrounds every one of us as part of the air we breathe.

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer amongst non-smokers¹.

Approximately 21,000 people die from radon-related lung cancer every year in the United States alone².

Due to radon’s fluctuating nature, long term, daily monitoring is necessary. If you discover your home has high levels, contact your local EPA or WHO for more information.

Where does radon come from?

The rocks and soil beneath our homes contain traces of uranium. Over time, the uranium breaks down and forms other elements. This is called radioactive decay. Radon is one link in the decay chain of uranium. When radon gas decays, it emits radioactive radiation in the form of an alpha particle.

What do my radon levels mean?

  • 0 – 49 Bq/m³:            No action needed

  • 49 – 99 Bq/m³:          Experiment with ventilation and sealing cracks to reduce levels

  • 100 – 299 Bq/m³:      Keep measuring. If levels are maintained for more than 3 months, contact a professional radon                                    mitigator

  • 300 Bq/m³ and up:   Keep measuring. If levels are maintained for more than 1 month, contact a professional radon mitigator
